Jamie Lynn: Mom -- and Wife -- to Be?

She's not a girl, not yet a woman, but if she's going to raise a baby, this southern gal isn't going to do it in sin.

Jamie Lynn Spears is sporting an engagement ring from fiance Casey Aldridge, according to People magazine. Spears, 16, is expecting her first child with Aldridge, 18, this summer. There's no word yet on a wedding date, or whether the affair will be a down-home Louisana shindig or a star-studded Hollywood bash.

Having watched big sister Britney marry Kevin Federline and divorce him two years later, setting off a bitter custody battle over their two sons, the younger Spears should know exactly what not to do in marriage. Prior to getting pregnant, Spears was the star of Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101." In October 2007, three months before she announced her pregnancy, she told Newsweek magazine "I just want to have a successful career … Not a crazy one."
